This Week on Pennies on a Platter
This section highlights the recipes posted this week on Pennies on a Platter and other updates to the blog, if any.
Enchilada Lasagna - A perfect meal to serve to your guests, still leaving you with delicious leftovers.
Cinnamon Buns - The first recipe featuring one of my readers! These cinnamon buns will knock your socks off with how super soft they are.
Dark Chocolate-Raspberry Ice Cream - This ice cream is super quick to put together, yet extremely luxurious to taste.
Dug Out from the Archives
Let's dig into the archives and reconsider some of the older recipes on Pennies on a Platter that we ate this week. (Some of which I plan to re-post with new photos and better directions in the near future.)
Sugar Cookies - I made some fun sugar cookies this week for a friend's bridal shower using this recipe. Can't wait to share them with you!
Pineapple Mango Salsa - We bought a new grill, finally, after our other one bit the dust during our recent move. The first thing we did was grill up chicken and served it topped with this fruity salsa.
Caught My Eye
I love reading other blogs and websites, and often bookmark their recipes, products or reviews. These are a few that top my list from the week.
Crispy Southwestern Wontons - After seeing these on Kevin & Amanda's blog, I'm ready to walk out the door right now to buy some wonton wrappers and get these babies fryin'! With their step-by-step photos and clear directions, I can tell these are a simple weeknight dinner or fun appetizer that will be on my meal plan very soon!
Cinco de Mayo Menu Ideas - Being a newer convert to Mexican food, I do not have a huge index of recipes to share for the upcoming Cinco de Mayo celebration. So, I was pleased to find Jason & Shawnda's review on their blog this week!
My Life as a Pastor's Wife and Food Blogger
Want more insight into my life as a Pastor's wife, mom, friend, relative and food blogger? Then, read on! If not, ignore this section. 🙂 This is a place for me to write what's on my mind and journal some of the crowning moments of my week.
Anytime we return from a vacation, we always seem to need a vacation from our vacation. So, this week I've been laying low trying to re-coop and catch up from being away from home for two weeks. And, although I'm calling it a vacation, it wasn't really a true vacation. It was a trip to see friends and family, mixed in with a pastor's conference Ben attended downtown Chicago. Hopefully a true, tropical or sight-seeing vacation will be in the works for sometime in the near future!
I'm leaving you with this video of Judah dancing with his Easter gift from his Aunt Gigi and Uncle Dewey. (We don't believe in traditional names around here!) 🙂
